“This music would sound wonderful even without its context. Knowing where it came from makes it infinitely more powerful. John Daversa's trumpet playing is masterful throughout, giving the element of mercurial, unceasing life to the compassionate vistas Justin Morell composes. For beauty and heart, this music is above and beyond anything else around today. It is an outstanding recording.” ― Jerome Wilson, All About Jazz
